    May 20 2011: The key to a successful TEDx event is passion. This may sound like an over simplification, but it really is the key. Find truly passionate presenters (not just subject matter experts or friends who want stage time to self-promote) who can deliver a TED-style talk and are willing to commit to giving the talk of their lives. Next, carefully curate a diverse audience of engaged people who are already contributing to big ideas in the community. The result will be a buzz of energy you're not likely to encounter anywhere else. Finally, don't let the buzz die. Continue to engage attendees and the community through social media and through monthly community conversations, if possible.
    • May 24 2011: The key to a successful TEDx event is an afterthought, or maybe a hunch..They must commit to ..nothing in particular, or maybe..the talk of their afternoon..next, take a random audience of anyone (or no one in particular) who are doing whatever they fancy that day..The result will be, whatever... In fact "whatever will be will be".. Then Let it Die..After all, Why harp on about it?
